When you want to install an infrared barrier and you do not know which one to choose. We advice you to make your choice according to the protected area. Follow the 4 steps which will help you to decide which kind of infrared barriers you should choose:
Step 1: what are the protection's objectives?
When you decide to install an infrared barrier, the principal objective is to protect a property. Perimeter protection can not be partial. You need to create a close perimeter to avoid an inappropriate access. According to the area’s characteristic, barriers number will be different as the position, the size and the infrared rays number to have efficient protection.
Generally, the plan are realized to detect an unwanted access. You need to know the environment to define the authorized access and not harmful such as small animals and / or driveways authorized. On the infrared barriers there is a parameter that can be modified according to the customer’s need.
Step 2: How is the protected area's environment?
The parameters to consider are:
- The condense: use an heating system inside the barrier to avoid the condense
- The fog: choose a product which include disqualification circuit in the way that the barrier stop and does not generate an inappropriate alarm. To have high level protection use a double technology barrier which is constituted of infrared rays and microwaves. That last technology guarantee a protection even with the fog.
- Plants and others interferences must not be on the infrared rays way, otherwise the barrier will be inefficient. That is also valid with partials interferences which could generate shadows on the infrared rays.
